Have eaten a few times in kyteler's so I'm be honest to say we were really dissappointed with it this time. The manager (i presume) on door ushered us to a cheap looking table in a grimy area. Looked like something in the cheapest of...greasy spoons. All bright lights and grubby looking in the back area. We asked to go inside to the proper pub with the lovely walls and proper set up. We had barely sat down when the waitress was on top of us looking to take order. We told her to come back as we'd only set down. Just an unprofessional set up. The dinner menu looked unappetising and looked like a lunch menu at expensive prices. This is not what kilkenny or kytelers is about. We decided to leave. We said it to manager on door, his comment was that this was the best they could do in Covid. It's certainly not the best an establishment can do during Covid I would think. We made the right choice as there was far better up the road..More

Came here for dinner. The menu was good and had plenty of choice. The food had the home cooked feeling, was very tasty and great sized portions. Would recommend this place for food and drinks.

It dropped in for lunch. The chicken+ham vol-au-vent is very special. You should try it here. However, the Irish stew disspointed me. It was more like a thick soup with beef.

I agree. We went on a Saturday night in March and had no problem. However, during the summer months it may be very crowded.
